  1. Was asked to paint this up for a friend who loves Japanese stuff and is planning on running a game based around Asian stuff. Not sure of the company, they just handed me the mini. The base I had was a teeny bit smaller then the actual mini. So I moved the limbs a bit to make it look like it is creeping off the base. Actually really like the effect. Kind of wish it was my mini to keep.
  2. This was started as a small-ish side project, but ended up being a big-ish project. With a lot of new things for me. The ghost is an old mini that I painted many years ago, and was quite happy with at the moment. And as I started up in this hoppy again, I thought I might build a base for it. I wanted it to look dark or low-light, so used a bit darker colors as I would normally have used, but I still wanted to use colors. I'm really happy with the result, I think it's the best piece of landscape I have made. And I learned a couple new things. A big thanks to all that commented and came with ideas and helpfull tips throughout the process. The Wip thread is here. Figures used; The Ghost: I think it is an Ral Partha, as most of my minies from back then seems to be, or does anyone recognise it? Skeleton: 77018 Reaper Skeleton Archer set, converted. Skulls and grave stones: Ristuls. Vegetation: Army Painter turfts, Noch and some home-made from an old brush. Tutorials more or less followed; Hanging moss on the tree: http://laughingferret.blogspot.com.au/2011/04/to-z-spanish-hanging-moss-tutorial.html A lot of good stuff: https://daggerandbrush.wordpress.com/
  3. I try to comfom to the posting title and tags rules as laid down by the high and mighty,..please let me know if anything need to be done differently. --- So, 2017 has arrived.Time to mess about with spirits. The first series of translucent Bones were made either in orange or in a bright greenish tinge, and it seems I only ever got round to painting one or two of the green ones. We can't have that, can we? As with all the translucents, the key is to prime the model with matte varnish. I use Army Painter Anti-Shine spray for this. After that I use mainly inks as they also are translucent. I have learned the hard way that normal paints are opaque and should be kept to a minimum if I want to keep the minis even slightly translucent. For this piece I started with a liberal coating of Vallejo Green Ink, taking care to draw off exessive pooling of ink with a damp brush. After that I used some old red lidded hexpot Citadel Turquoise Glaze on the bottom half. I detailed the mini with a very light dusting of normal light bone paint on it's visible skeletal hand, and a slightly heavier drybrushing of ScaleColour Cobalt Alchemy light blue metallic on the sword and crossguard, as if it is half-materialized. I also painted the inside of the hood's cowl with ScaleColor Bloodfest Crimson (a very dark red/brown). What cannot be seen in the pictures are the pinpoint bright yellow/green eyes in the depths of the cowl. The gravestone with skulls was done in typical greys and bone-colour with a simple strong tone quickshade for effect. Now all it needs is some matte varnish to take the edge off the shinyness of the inks, but that will have to wait until springtime. 77097 Grave Wraith Reaper Bones KS1 Sculpted by Bob Ridolfi Green translucent Bonesium PVC 40m base
  4. I know I'm not following the guidelines by entering more than one mini per thread, but there's a theme to these. I'll take more chocolate to the next con and beg for forgiveness then. First up, Lurien 03170 Next, Spirits 03298 Now a mini I picked up at the paint and take at Origins, Sorrow from Malefaux: And some Zombiecide, well, zombies. The models were shiny when I go them already primed at the paint and take at Origins, and painting did not do much to knock it down. And finally an Iron Wind Metals mini to go with the zomibes: Not as many models this year, but I did get some nice ones in my order from Reaper today, so maybe a better showing next year. Happy Halloween! Bonus mini, 77352 Demi-Lich. Not really happy with this one. One interesting thing to note, though. There seems to be more than one skeleton on the base...
  5. Made a coven throne from the start collecting set. Now it just needs basing.: WIP pics:
  6. This is the Ghost from Reaper's Bones miniatures line. I got started on it last year with a few quick runovers with green ink. Since then it has been collecting dust on the shelf but I figured I might as well finish it. So I did some highlighting on the face and hands and painted the headstone.
  7. This is actually a mini that I painted at least a couple of years ago. I'd seen quite a few versions where people had painted just the hands and head and left the robes translucent, so I decided to do the opposite and paint the robe. I still painted the hands and skull with some Tamiya clear green, and gave them a quick highlight with white.
  8. This week I painted the "Drowned Spirit" figure to use as a wraith in my Frostgrave games. This figure was newly released when I was planning my Frostgrave harbor terrain build, and something about it just made it seem like the perfect fit to be a ghost to haunt the old harbor. So, I ordered it during the12 Days of Reaper promotion, and just now got around to painting it. To help convey the frigid Frostgrave look, I added a Water Effects icicle under the rocky outcropping and used snow flocking n the base. Also, I went with a glossy finish, instead of my usual matte, to help bring across the wet look. It is just intended for game use, so I probably didn't devote enough time as the figure deserves, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out nonetheless. As always, C & C welcome.
  9. Hope you guys like it :).
  10. I just want to show off the non player minis I painted for my Dungeons & Dragons club over the past year. Today: everything undead Starting with zombies, I got me some that could fit in a fantasy setting: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/zombie/sku-down/06135 http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/zombie/sku-down/03598 http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/03601/sku-down/03601 next up are skeletal warriors. I love these figures, they remind me so much of the old Ray Harryhausen movies. http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/06133/sku-down/06133 Then we got Dragoth, the defiler http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/02056/sku-down/02056 The ghost king http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/02991/sku-down/02991 And the whispering tyrant who - being quite a snap taller than average human - makes a pretty good level boss http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/60060/sku-down/60060 ...hope you like them
  11. Hi ! My first Bones mini for test (after Cthulhu) :) ... A really simple paint, and super cool mini :
  12. Here is another one of my vintage minis. I was going for a simplistic "Scooby-Doo" villain style glowing white ghost for this mini & rather than paint the lantern as an actual object, I wanted to make it part of the spirit of the ghost.
  13. The female ghost for my campaign.
  14. I really love the Bonesylvanians. After taking Derek Schubert's "Monochrome Painting" class at the Reaper Artist Conference last October, I was really excited to try my hand at it. [side note: Check out the miniatures he used for the class demos (and later finished up) in Derek's forum post here. Give it a shot, it's something everyone should try at least once!] I won't claim that I painted Gus using only black and white-- I added a bit of blue too! I painted him using only Ghost White (of course), Snow Shadow, and Blue Liner. The only exceptions to this are his eyes = Brilliant Blue and his tooth = Pure White. Overall, I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. I found that painting white can be a real challenge and that painting monochrome is leading me into some interesting future painting studies in values and textures!

  15. So, this is a rather big project for me. been in the planning stage for a long time now. Almost afraid to start.. I am not much fan of the egyptian parts of the warhammer undead armies, and decided I want to try having a more gothic undead army, which means creating my own stuff to proxy. I got a little carried away, and decided to make all of this into a little diorama. Ordered a ton of bits and pieces, and had to pay through the nose in government custom fees.. but what can you do? :D Anyway, here is a little test of how things will be: So far it consists of: 2xNightspectres, 77099 Ghostly summons, 77095 Dragoth the Defiler, 30010 Crypt of the Vampiress, 02990 Altar of Evil, 77139 Female: Victim, (P02580C) Shannon (body), (P02083A) Back of Throne (P02068B). .. and some jewlerybead skulls..
  16. Again two more ( tired yet of this Undead invasion?). Ghost is from Harlequin, Zombie from Grenadier.
  17. So I finished the Undead Regiment. Background story.. the Vampire Queen lost a big battle, fled to a swamp/jungle area. Subdued the swampfolk and now faces a rebellion. Some swamp creatures follow her, others oppose her. Here is the full regiment. Mixed Manufacturers. Mixed types of Undead. I will post them separatly or in smaller groups for better pics of them all. I will try not to flood the forum, so today the regiment and the first solo/smaller groups. The rest will follow shortly. The Vampire Queens heraldry is red and purple so all the Undead have this colours somewhere. Also as a sign she is mistress of the swamp, her heraldry has a snake in it, variations are found on the shields and banner. Now the horde:
  18. Just a couple of creepy minis I've been working on between other things (Rope guy was painted up a couple of months ago, Wire guy last week). Didn't put too much time or effort into either of them, but I think they turned out really good. Comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  19. Some more of my older work. Are you people tired yet from all my reposting?? These are my Ghostly twins.
  20. This is used as a spirit host in my warhammer army, or as a filler for the skeleton unit when not. Everything on this base, except the zombie, is from reaper, but I can only find the tombstone using the figure finder. There are quite a few reaper minis in my block of 50 skeletons:
  21. So here is the treat I got with my Reaper order last week, along with a couple of relatives: Strahd, a Warhammer Fantasy hero, and Reaper's own classic Vampire, 03248. I like the flesh on that last one the best; I might have to go back and repaint the others. Dark Elf triad, final high-light mixed DE high-light mixed with the Shattered Bone 9273 that came with my order. Once started on the Halloween theme, I had to keep going with Pumpkin Horrors, 03356. I used the Reaper HD Burning Orange, hit it with a brown wash, high-lighted with the Pumpkin Orange 9270 that came with my order. Oh, and the hats are high-lighted with the Nightmare Black 9280 from the same. No bases on these as they will (probably) never be used in a game; they might end up in a diorama someday. I really enjoyed painting these. I got Rotpatch with my order, so I have more evil pumpkin painting in my future. And some older stuff I had to dust off. From left to right, an old AD&D banshee from Ral Partha, a old Ral Partha miniature that Iron Wind Metals still sells, a Mithril Miniatures figure, and my first crack at the Bones Ghost. And finally, the beastie that will eat the PCs in my next D&D session. Not really Halloween, but in the ballpark. Oh, and in the back ground is a Games Workshop Garden of Mor I recently painted up. I hope you enjoy the pics and Happy Halloween!
  22. Just for fun, I painted this guy up. The body was painted with Tamiya X-24 Clear Yellow, then drybrushed white, then given a generous coat of glow-in-the-dark yellow. He's still pretty translucent, but he's definitely not green anymore. As always, C&C welcome!
  23. This weekend I got into a painting mood and finished several pieces, a great worm and a stone golem, and started several skeletons, ghouls, and golems. I started this one and the Banshee last year and wanted to try something different. I started out with a white wash base coat from Apple Barrel white and Reaper's flow improver, took two layers to get a good coverage. I then washed it with GW's Thrakka Green and proceeded to leave them for months. This weekend I finshed this one. I did a heavy drybrush of Meadow Green to knock down some of the green glossyness. For a different spectral theme I decided to throw some purple into the color scheme so I used GW's Leviathian Purple wash. To tone down the glossiness of the wash I then finished it off with a drybrush of Mossy Green. At this point I'm not sure if the original green wash is contributing anything to the palate. For the skeletons, my wife suggested a tarnished penny look. So I mixed some Meadow Green, Ancient Bronze and Redstone. The Redstone made it too red so I added a bit of Mossy green and a touch of brown. It looked ok but didn't really make them stand out so I hit them with the tarnished brass. Not the tarnished penny look but I like it, again it's a different direction. For the base I layed down GW's Charadon Granite and followed it up with a drybrush of Noir Black. I intended to do a light drybrush of Maggot White but it came out too heavy so I did a light drybrush of Noir Black and another light drybrush of Maggot White. I think it made for a nice depth look. My phone camera's flash makes it look like there is more white showing through then is really there but in the base photos you can get a better idea of the look.
  24. So, I'm kinda stuck on this one. I followed the first several steps I did for my nightspectre. Where I'm stuck is what to do for the skin color. Do I go a greenish vampire, vampire, dark elf, copper tan, etc? My flash makes it appear that there is more white than what there really is, also I didn't touch up the skin and definitive clothing bits so they still have a heavy white tone from the first few steps.
